Term 4 Vile Victorians

Welcome back everyone.

Here are the final pictures of last term’s displays as our blog has been down over the holidays.

We have had a very busy first week ending with our journey back in time to Friday 24th February 1887. But first…

More fractions – this week we have been looking at changing improper fractions into mixed fractions (whole numbers and simple fraction), finding equivalent decimal fractions for tenths and fifths, and addition and subtraction of fractions with the same denominator.

Wednesday morning we went orienteering at Avon Valley Collage. We won the overall KS2 competition and Mattie and Amelia were the highest scoring pair. Well done everyone. At  the end of the competition all schools were put into mixed teams and had to complete a relay orienteering challenge and Magnus, Charlie, Zara and Devon were in the winning team and also won medals.

 

Today KS2 came to Woodborough Victorian school.

In Lime Class (class 4) we spent the whole day in the year 1887. We had lessons in the 3Rs – using slates and copybooks – with lots of rote learning and ending the morning with geography. In the afternoon the whole key stage started with drill on the playground and then all the girls came to class 4 to learn decoupage and boys went to lessons to improve their practical skills in design, gardening and technical drawing.

Everyone looked and behaved fantastically. A very specially experience for us all.

To see more take a look at Mrs Brewis’ school blog.

And so to week two of term 4… Book Week! The whole school will be transformed into the world of ‘One Book’, with lots of exciting things going on all week. Please see the Book Week Newsletter for timings.

Our English homework for week two will be handed out on Monday as we are keeping the title of the ‘Book’ top secret until then.

Have a lovely weekend everyone.
